    Video: Mirage top speed, 180 kph / 111 mph

    Kind of a boring video, but I am impressed that the 74 hp engine can push the aerodynamic Mirage to 111 mph!

    That last 20km/h was agonizing. But how many of us plan on driving our cars that fast? The only time I've gotten to that speed was on the Autobahn in a rental Ford Focus diesel, and it topped out at 210km/h (the last 15km/h was also very slow going as it slowly inched up in speed). Still, a good performance by the Mirage and not too far behind that more powerful Focus

    Hey, thanks! I remember you from Ecomodder.

    So that mark on the speedo would be equivelant to 120 mph?

    You can only push in 4th gear, 5th gear it loses power unless the road is declining. I tried on German autobahn and just managed to reach 145 km/hour on my 1.0L
